Thank you Carolyn very much for sharing your extraordinary creativity with the students and staff at our school. I know through your art and passion you have inspired them to make a difference for their future. Jacqui R. Newstead Primary.
I want to say thank you for sharing the expertise of your residence artist Carolyn Cardinet. We enjoyed the wealth of enthusiasm, creativity and knowledge Carolyn has around sustainability and the many things she collects and shares. The weaving looks amazing and the Year 1s loved the unit with many going home to share information about sustainability with their parents. Anna A. MLC Junior school.
Thank you for coming and work with our tiny toddlers on this collaborative installation
for our foyer space entrance. Each child enjoyed learning about plastic and how to make beautiful and elaborate birds nest with paper and plastic waste to be included in the hanging ceiling space.
